NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. -- In the first partnership of its kind in Westchester County, the City of New Rochelle and the City School District of New Rochelle plan to unveil a community wide plan in response to President Obama’s 'My Brother’s Keeper' initiative on Monday, Oct. 26, at 4:00 p.m. at New Rochelle High School. The unveiling will be held in the Whitney M. Young Auditorium. All are welcome to attend.
In February 2014, President Barack Obama announced 'My Brother’s Keeper,' urging communities across the country to band together to better support boys and young men of color. In April 2015 the City of New Rochelle and the City School District jointly accepted the challenge. At this launch event, MBK New Rochelle will address its core goals and how the entire city, household to household, is supporting these essential efforts.
MBK New Rochelle is a coalition bringing together hundreds of stakeholders across the City. The group spans more than 100 local agencies and encompasses the City’s vast municipal, corporate, non-profit, community, and educational resources.
MBK Committee Members New Rochelle High School Principal Reginald Richardson and New Rochelle City Councilman Jared Rice will be present. Mayor Noam Bramson and Superintendent of Schools Dr. Brian Osborne will also be in attendance.
